Original French Sandwich

If you are vacationing on the French Riviera I would recommend trying at least once a French sandwich, an alternative to the beach kiosk or cafes: a DIY lunch.

A good way is to try local regional products: bread, cheese, ham, fruits, vegetables and detox water.

A good French baguette can make this lunch exceptionally lusiouse.

You might have added some calories with the bread, the cheese and the onion relish, but you have also eliminated them replacing chips, dessert and sugary drink with radishes, fresh fruit and water.

I would say a much healthier option!
